Obama for America has thus far remained silent about the recent Pew survey, focusing their attention instead on Romney’s foreign policy.
“Romney and his advisers have repeatedly criticized our allies on the campaign trail — calling Europe a ‘second-tier nation,’ criticizing the British prime minister for political purposes, and labeling Russia our ‘number one geopolitical foe’ — all while failing to lay out a coherent foreign policy agenda and instead embracing the radical views of John Bolton,” Seidler added. “America can’t afford Mitt Romney as commander in chief.”
Bolton, a former ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush, believes Obama has tried too hard to distinguish his foreign policy from Bush’s.
“When your strategy consists largely of saying, ‘I’m not that guy,’ it’s no wonder it comes out confused and incoherent and incompetent, which is a pretty good description of the Obama foreign policy,” Bolton said on Fox in April.
Bolton signed on to Romney’s foreign policy team in January.
Update: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that the Obama for America statement criticizing Mitt Romney was made on the same day the Pew study was release. The Daily Caller regrets the error.
